Nokia Messaging, now available with Windows(TM) Live Hotmail®
Nokia 5800 XpressMusic will enable the Nokia Messaging push email service in May
Espoo, Finland - Windows(TM) Live Hotmail®, one of the world’s most popular web-based email solutions, is now available on Nokia Messaging, the service that enables people to access their personal email on their Nokia devices*. In May, Nokia Messaging will also be supported by the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia’s first mass-market touchscreen device, adding to the tens of millions of popular Nokia devices in the hands of consumers that already support the service.
Nokia Messaging is currently free to download and set-up, and supports the world’s most popular email accounts - Windows Live Hotmail, Yahoo! Mail, Gmail, AOL Mail - and accounts from thousands of other email providers. Easy to use, it enables access of up to 10 personal email accounts on a Nokia device, and through one single icon. Once Nokia Messaging is set-up, email accounts can be added to the service directly on the phone, as well as via the Nokia Messaging website (http://email.nokia.com).
With the addition of the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia Messaging will be available on 20 different device models worldwide, including the recently announced Nokia E75 which is the first device to come preloaded with Nokia Messaging, Nokia E71 - the world’s slimmest qwerty device, Nokia E63, Nokia E66 and Nokia N79**. More Nokia device models, including the Nokia E55, Nokia N97 and Nokia N86 8MP, will support Nokia Messaging when they begin shipping.
“We’ve come to understand that a key barrier for mass email adoption is not the lack of features, but the usability. Nokia Messaging was designed for ease of use and mobility. While offering people a full feature set, Nokia Messaging still minimizes user actions and simplifies the complex, such as eliminating the need to know technical information. This reduces confusion and the amount of time taken to set up and start using the service on the phone. By prioritizing common actions and needs, we bring the most relevant and frequently used actions upfront,” said Atif Hussein, Vice President, Products, Nokia Messaging. “With Nokia Messaging on the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, we bring the service to people no matter what their input preference - touch, qwerty or monoblock.”
* To begin using Windows Live Hotmail, existing users will have to download the latest Nokia Messaging software. Instructions can be found at http://email.nokia.com.
